launched earlier this week at california’s oakland international airport, the uniqlo to go vending machine stocks two of their most popular products both from the LifeWear collection: the thermal heat-tech t-shirt and the ultra light down jacket. available in different sizes and colors, people who decide to buy from the vending machine can do it through a touch screen. as for the return policy, unwanted items can be returned at the shops or by mail.
